While viewing my project in premiere pro in the preview window, everything appears to be just fine. However, when I export the video it looks terrible and pixelated I am very new to Premiere Pro and I could have all my settings wrong but someone please help. I have attached what my export settings look like below. Thank you for any help!

Your issue is that you are setting the export wrong.

Here you have a couple of export options for your video according to the resolution, pixel aspect ratio and the framerate that I can see in your screenshot.

Option 1:

Hi britt_zanone,

Your source is HD and your preset is standard def, so your settings are, indeed, wrong. You want to first change the format to something like H.264, then choose one of the HD presets. Try the one for YouTube HD.

At first glance, it also looks like you shot the original video incorrectly. Try shooting video in a widescreen "landscape" orientation by rotating the camera 90 degrees.

Let us know if you need more assistance.

Thanks,
Kevin

Thanks! I had the portrait like that on purpose to create an effect on Instagram! As for the H.264 that fixed it!

I'm always having low/poor quality output when I export video (in .mp4) from Premiere Pro CS6.

It looks fine & of good quality while editing in PP CS6. It contains an audio, text & an image (.png) as background.

Audio Sample Rate is 44.1khz. Bitrate of the MP3 is 320kbps.

 

I'm getting Low Quality Video Output even after choosing YouTube 1080 preset followed by render at max depth. Please help me sorting this out! Below are the images of temp video which I made for testing out export settings for my original Music Lyric Video.

Read the post by Byron Cortez earlier in this thread. You do probably have a mis-match somewhere. That´s what you need to fix.
